Jeremy Irons Fights to Ban HGVs from Watlington

From The Daily Mail

Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons in fight to ban lorries from his Oxfordshire town

  • The revered actor is leading Watlington Against Pollution and HGVs
    The group is fighting for a ban on lorries using the town as a rat-run
    Lorries regularly pass through on their way between the M4 and M40

He is a passionate campaigner on green issues, and now Jeremy Irons has backed a campaign to ban lorries from the quaint Oxfordshire town where he lives.

The Oscar–winning actor has thrown his weight behind an action group to prevent HGVs using the narrow streets of Watlington as a rat-run between the M40 and M4.

The market town – reputedly the smallest in the country – is regularly snarled up with lorries whose drivers, looking for a shortcut between Oxford and Reading, are directed there by their satnavs.

Watlington Against Pollution and HGVs plans to put pressure on local councils to take action against the out-of-place vehicles.

Irons, 65, star of Brideshead Revisited, lives in the picturesque town with his wife, Sinead Cusack, which has been used as the backdrop for ITV crime drama, Midsomer Murders.

Nestled between the Vale of Oxford and the steep slopes of the Chilterns, records show it was once the site of a Saxon settlement in the 8th century.

But Bronze Age axe and Roman coins have also been excavated, suggesting it has a much earlier past.

Keith Lovelace, the group’s chairman, said: ‘Jeremy Irons is a resident of Watlington and he feels strongly about it so it makes sense for him to be part of it.

‘We all know that if there is a celebrity behind a cause then it gets better publicity.

‘We have a lot of people behind us and we are determined to succeed.’

An air pollution report conducted earlier this year found that readings were similar to those recorded in the London borough of Lewisham.

This was due to the number of large vehicles and the tall buildings in narrow streets acting like a canyon affect, trapping it low to the ground.

Irons, who won the Oscar for Best Actor in 1991 for his portrayal of the fictional character Claus von Bülow in the Hollywood blockbuster, Reversal of Fortune, agreed to become patron after being made aware of the pressure group by his personal assistant, who was already a member.

Mr Lovelace said they understood the need for lorries to supply businesses and deliveries to homeowners, and the group is targeting passing HGVs.

One measure being looked at is to introduce a congestion charge scheme.

THE BELLING FORUM
SATURDAY 07 SEPTEMBER WEST CORK HOTEL SKIBBEREEN AT 2 P M

West Cork is viewed as an authentic place, very beautiful, largely unspoilt, with a diverse, eclectic and innovative population. These are among the “magic” ingredients that make up the experience that is West Cork.

The region is seen both nationally and internationally as a very desirable place both to live in and to visit where one would expect to experience a genuine way of life, a clean and magnificent environment, the best of food, the best of art and crafts, and a resourceful intelligent and inventive people well accustomed to multitasking.

It is argued that the present and future development of West Cork lies in the business of:
1. Growing and food production (both land and sea)
2. Delivery of education
3. Tourism
4. High Tech

All of those who live in West Cork or visit regularly can readily see the destructive hand of recession and the despair of bank debt and emigration. It is time to fight back!

As part of the Taste of West Cork Festival, the Belling Food Awards Committee will host a Forum in the West Cork Hotel on Saturday 07 September at 2 p m. entitled “Joining Together – how to achieve universal recognition for the West Cork Region”. This initiative will be a ‘think tank’ from which will be compiled a five year action plan (with the emphasis on action!) supported and promoted by A Taste of West Cork, The Belling Awards Committee and its various partners going forward. The Forum will be addressed by 15 representative speakers who will present each of their proposals in a strict time frame of five minutes each.
The Forum will then be open to all attendees for further discussion.

Speakers at the Forum will include:

Professor Peter Jones of UCC, Lord David Puttnam, Mr Eoin McGonigal, Chairman of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Valerie Kingston of Glenilen Farm, Food Writer Joe McNamee of the Irish Examiner, Des O’Dowd of Inchydoney Hotel, Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds, Jean Perry of Glebe Gardens, Giana Ferguson of Gubbeen Farm, Avril Allshire of Caherbeg Free-range Pork, Alison Ospina of the Craft Council, Guy Watson of Riverford Farm, a representative of Shellfish de la Mer and a representative of Cork County Council. The Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney is expected along also with some surprise guests. A number of public representatives will be in the audience to include all our local TDs and the MD of Supervalu/Centra Martin Kelleher. It is hoped that there will be a rigorous discussion as to how West Cork will go forward to gain universal recognition. The Conference will be recorded, the ideas collected and a plan put in place to implement the development of this blueprint for West Cork.
